We have recently added two minorca chickens to our flock,they are young birds and at the moment still a little aloof, but i’m sure over time they will become as tame as all our other hens, well except for our cuckoo maran who is very slowly becoming tamer.
As the name suggests the minorca is a breed of chicken originating from the Mediterranean island of Minorca. From what i can gather hens can be very large and weigh close to 7 lbs. And cockerells are larger and can reach three feet in height.
Below are some photos of our new girls Lucy and Rhona.
